Hi, I'm Inna. I'm a mom to two older boys (still at home while in school) and a 15yo daughter. I was diagnosed with MAS (Multiple Autoimmune Syndrome) about a year and a half ago. My conditions make it nearly impossible for me to work a regular schedule, so saving money is my job! I use coupons on grocery items already on sale to get the most benefit. I also use reward apps and discounted gift cards whenever possible. It's nice to meet you all 😁 Take Care!

Hi, everyone! I'm Patty (37), divorced mom to Robert (15). I have always been ok with bill repayment and the like, but am not the greatest at budgeting my discretionary spending.  I bought a house in 2011 when I was working FT as a nurse.  Have become disabled since then and trying to make money stretch as far as it can.  I have SSDI for myself and my son (as my minor), a private disability insurance, and a small child support income.  The mortgage eats up a huge chunk and each month I have about $500 for food, gas, copays, etc.  I do have quite a few medical expenses.  I need to improve on budgeting and planning where each dollar goes, esp on food.
